West Ham, Inter Milan rival Bologna for free agent Arnautovic

West Ham are taking a second look at Marko Arnautovic.

The 32-year-old bagged 22 goals in 65 games for the Hammers before leaving for Chinese Super League side Shanghai Port in 2019.

However, Shanghai Port have reportedly decided to let Arnautovic leave for free this summer, saving on his lucrative contract which is understood to be worth £280,000-a-week.

Crystal Palace, Everton, Inter and AC Milan are understood to be monitoring the winger, while Italian side Bologna have opened talks with Arnautovic's brother and agent Danijel over a move.

And Bologna paper Il Resto del Carlino reports that both the Hammers and Palace have enquired about the Austrian, while Everton contacted Danijel in January.

Arnautovic enjoyed a loan spell at Inter ten years ago before joining Bundesliga side Werder Bremen. He then made the switch to England where he played for Stoke for four seasons in the Premier League.
